Jonah2: 1 THEN JONAH prayed to the Lord his God from the fish’s belly,
2 And said, I cried out of my distress to the Lord, and He heard me; out of the belly of Sheol cried I, and You heard my voice.
3 For You cast me into the deep, into the heart of the seas, and the floods surrounded me; all Your waves and Your billows passed over me.
4 Then I said, I have been cast out of Your presence and Your sight; yet I will look again toward Your holy temple.
5 The waters compassed me about, even to life; the abyss surrounded me, the seaweed was wrapped about my head.
6 I went down to the bottoms and the very roots of the mountains; the earth with its bars closed behind me forever. Yet You have brought up my life from the pit and corruption, O Lord my God.
7 When my soul fainted upon me , I earnestly and seriously remembered the Lord; and my prayer came to You, into Your holy temple.
8 Those who pay regard to false, useless, and worthless idols forsake their own mercy and loving-kindness.
9 But as for me, I will sacrifice to You with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that which I have vowed. Salvation and deliverance belong to the Lord!
10 ¶ And the Lord spoke to the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.
1 ¶ AND THE word
